Yeah, you're correct about the gels & the term "windowpane". I recall way back when there being red & blue gels that were fabulously clean acid that was always quite good.

It is a reference to the transparent gelatinous form that the hits came in. Like stained glass... you could hold them up and look through them. Last I saw one was 1989 and I showed it to an old fart and confirmed it was the same mythical item from pschyadelic nostalgia's past.

TT: ..."stained glass"...that's great. Thanks a lot.

I was aware of the gel from Hunter's description of his experience back in '62, but I couldn't tie together the term "windowpane" with a gel. The image of light coming through stained-glass is perfect. Unfortunately the stuff I was getting was just crap thirty years ago --- fortunately my experience with 'shrooms made-up for the other junk.

Thanks to all for the insight --- AshesRising

Yeah--clear, clean, and pure. Post owsley. Remember blotter? A sheet of 1/4" x 1/2" prints of Mr. Natural with a drop on each one. And orange barrels, and orange sunshine, and later on the crappy shit with speed in it. Bleh.

Not that I ever took any, officr.

I remember Dancing Test Tubes, Circle #1's, blotter that was just a solid color like Orange Sunshine, Globes, and too many others to name. I had what I'd term my one and only "bad trip" on acid that had WAY TOO MUCH strychnine (spelling?) in it---it made you clench your jaw, and it felt like you'd been biting on steel for hours at a time.

It it my imagination or do people deliberatly skip over the most recent post and reply to the old post to exclude people from conversations? Maybe I am just paranoid but it seems that way... I replied a while ago and then two people thread off the old comment...

i don't do it to exclude anyone at all - i just never simply post to the most recent - never have.

purple made a post that i felt like commenting on so i replied to his - i've always done it that way - i know there are different philosophies on posting etiquette here on the forum, but this is the manner in which i have done it for years and years.

no offense if i ever offended anyone by posting in this manner- and i don't exclude anyone in conversations (not intentionally anyways)

errrrrrrrr....ahhhhhhhh.....ahem (cough)

no, i haven't forgotten your kind offer and trading possibilities (really haven't) - still got your email addy sitting at the comp.

ive been on hiatus from trading/burning/receiving any new discs for a little bit (except for a few that were in the works from JOTS, and a few that arrived recently via the kindness of Dancin')

certainly no offense has been intended my friend - sorry - i'm just a major league dumbass (as the majority of people here will certainly attest to)

i am still interested though - believe me
i'm about to get my second wind in the trading and sharing department - just got a bit burned out.
